fiction / 2018 / Poland, France, United Kingdom / bw / 84 min.

A passionate love story unfolding against the backdrop of the Cold War. – The period of the growth of Stalin’s Poland, but also modern Europe, becomes a setting for the story of great and fateful love between singer Zula and composer Wiktor. They cannot be together and yet are incredibly drawn to each other, unable to stay apart. Warsaw, Berlin and Paris become a backdrop for jazz and folk music, as Zula and Wiktor gently play a gorgeous, yet bitter ballad – their very own Cold War.
